Dr McNamee said he was excited to join the Board and Chair an industry leading company in GenesisCare.

“GenesisCare has a clear purpose to improve patient access and outcomes and this Australian founded company has a chance to have a profound and positive impact on healthcare outcomes globally”.

“It’s exciting to work closely with the founding CEO Dan Collins, the Board, and Dan’s leadership team,” Dr McNamee said.

Dr McNamee said he would like to recognise the contribution of the previous Chairman of ten years, Mr. David Vaux, and the many doctor leaders, managers and committed staff that have contributed to the development and success of GenesisCare over almost 15 years.

Dan Collins said he was excited by what Dr McNamee’s leadership and experience will mean for GenesisCare, particularly as it set about implementing a new global and strategic agenda.
